While the rainy weather was less than desirable, Andrew and Belinda greeted us with warm smiles and a benevolent room upgrade to a Beachfront Spa Villa. The location was perfect as it was on a private stretch of the beach and only attached to one other unit. The best part about the space was the uninterrupted view of the ocean. It was spectacular to enjoy breakfast on the terrace listening to the rain and watching the waves crash. We loved our stay and would gladly return, this time to experience some sunshine and warmth. Thanks for making our vacation effortless and memorable.

For a Mother’s Day and a birthday treat we decided to pamper ourselves with a visit to the Spa. Although we didn’t stay at the resort we had read the reviews and were excited to try them. From the first phone call until we finished and walked out the door the experience was great. The spa itself has a calming, serene atmosphere. Upon arrival we were treated to a glass of bubbles to celebrate which was such a thoughtful surprise. Marisa was my therapist - she was awesome. Professional, friendly, thoughtful and courteous. I have no hesitation recommending these two lovely ladies. We will definitely return.

Highly recommended

From start to finish, we were more than impressed with our stay. Starting with a friendly welcome from John at the airport, who transferred us to the villas. When we arrived, we were instantly hit with an overwhelming wow factor, the villa was presented wonderfully. Belinda and Andrew were also fantastic and went the extra mile to ensure our stay went smoothly and looked after us well. We'll be back for sure!

Just returned from our 20th wedding anniversary at Rumours; succinctly stated and simply put, fantastic, luxurious experience!

Belinda and Andrew made time for us, and we saw them both on more than one occasion. Andrew was so cheery while delivering the breakfast platter most days, and Andrew was spot on with recommendations for dinner, etc., on the island. Belinda was magical as well, and stated she would "handle" our anniversary dinner, and did she ever! A seafood/sushi platter was delivered and it was a feast for the eyes and body. Thank you Andrew and Belinda for always coming thru and living up to all the excellent reviews - hard to do in this day and age, but you did it with flying colors!

We stayed in two separate villas: beachfront villa 2 and then spa villa 7. If you are laboring over "which one" - stop laboring. Both villas are fantastic and you will be thrilled with either. We spent much time in the water (kayaking out to snorkel spots, and then simply swimming out to other spots). Spa villa closer to these snorkel spots, but if that is not for you, then don't concern yourself. The immaculate and comfortable villas, spacious and clean, are simply stunning. Go. Book. Enjoy. Stop reading to determine if you should book with Rumours or not. We did, are so happy we did and will be back!
